Created by Emmy® nominees Bill Lawrence (Scrubs, Spin City, Cougar Town, Clone High) and Greg Malins (How I Met Your Mother, Friends), Ground Floor is a workplace comedy with a romantic twist, set between the polished floors of corporate America. The series centers on Brody (Skylar Astin – Pitch Perfect), a promising young money manager who thought he was just having a fling with Jennifer (Briga Heelan – Cougar Town), a beautiful, fun woman he met at an office party. He discovers, however, that she works in the maintenance department for the building his firm is located in, along with a group of truly carefree people. Suddenly their worlds collide in the most unexpected ways, as Brody begins to question what is important in life — much to the chagrin of his business-driven boss, Mr. Mansfield (John C. McGinley – Scrubs, Office Space). The series also stars Rene Gube, James Earl, Rory Scovel and Alexis Knapp.
